The House on Mango Street, by Sandra Cisneros by María Herrera-Sobek; Salem Press Editors

Race, Gender, and Class in the Tea Party by Meghan A. Burke
Publication Date: 2015-01-27
It has been all too tempting to characterize the Tea Party as an irrational, racist, astro-turf movement composed of members who are working to subvert their own economic interests. Race, Gender, and Class in the Tea Party reveals a much messier and much more fascinating analysis of this movement.
